Hey All, my 7yo daughter is REALLY getting into video games. My next door neighbor and also another good friend both bought Nintendo Switch for their kids as well. If any of you have that console for your kids, any pros and cons I should be thinking about?
Also, there’s a rumor that on 03/10 they’ll be bundling the Switch with Super Mario Odyssey , and “something related to [the] upcoming Super Mario Movie .”
I don’t know anything about Super Mario Odyssey. Would it be worth the wait? Thanks!
I have a switch. I love it. My 9 year old also has one. I can’t say I play either of the Mario games though. I play a lot of Fortnite, the Friday the 13th game, and some other things like Mortal Kombat 11 and maybe some Mario Kart. Also play Minecraft with my son.
Some kids love to play video-games with friends outside of school. Just be careful letting them play games with strangers. Some can be mean/inappropriate if there is a chat function of any sort in a game.
My five year old makes me play the Mario games with him. Definitely some good times with that! One surprise is I had him try the Atari classics collection. Most of the games bore him but he can’t get enough of Maze Craze and Falg Capture in the collection. We’ve been playing a lot of those two. Simple, fun, non-violent two player games.
"Creating mods for Minecraft on the Nintendo Switch is possible, but it requires some technical expertise and knowledge of programming. The Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft is based on the Bedrock Edition, which supports add-ons, mods, and custom content. However, the process of creating and installing mods on the Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft is not as straightforward as on other platforms such as PC.
To create mods for Minecraft on the Nintendo Switch, you need to use a tool such as Add-Ons Maker for Minecraft or Universal Minecraft Editor to create your mods. These tools allow you to create custom skins, blocks, items, and other game elements using a graphical interface.
Once you have created your mod, you need to transfer it to the Nintendo Switch console. This requires modifying the game files on the console, which can be risky and may void your warranty. There are various methods to transfer mods to the Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft, including using a USB drive or connecting the console to a computer.
It’s important to note that modding is not officially supported by Nintendo or Minecraft, and it can potentially harm your console or compromise its security. Additionally, using mods on multiplayer servers may result in a ban or other penalties. Therefore, it’s essential to understand the risks and limitations of modding before attempting to create or install mods on the Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft."
He says he can’t find the mod (Create Mod?) in the marketplace. I’ve looked for him too. When I couldn’t find it is when I asked the internet.
I did see there were ways of hacking into the switch, but I think it was potentially a hazard to the device….
The closest thing I did see was something about using these mods on another device (iPad) and then joining that character in that world from the switch…then killing the iPad character and “taking over” essentially.
I’m paraphrasing a lot here because I really no clue how to do all that…I haven’t even figured out how to let him play online with his cousins yet…
The Create Mod seems to be a Java only mod, meaning you cant get it for the switch even if you hack it. I wouldnt recommend hacking it anyway as it is hazardous to the device. This is the only disappointing part about Bedrock Edition is that you cant really mod the game as you can with Java. So the only thing you can really do is look for another mod similar to it on the Marketplace, sorry
